The Northern District of Georgia granted final approval to a class action lawsuit claiming that Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. (“Defendant” or “Wells Fargo”), violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act by calling, or sending non-emergency texts to, cellphones without prior express consent.
The lawsuit claims Wells Fargo used an automatic telephone dialing system or artificial or prerecorded voice technology to make or initiate calls in connection with either a residential mortgage loan (“Subclass One”) and/or a home equity loan (“Subclass Two”) during the Class Period, which is November 17, 2011 to February 29, 2016 for Subclass One and April 14, 2011 to February 29, 2016 for Subclass Two. Wells Fargo denies that it broke the law and denies doing anything wrong.
Under the Settlement, each Class Member who submitted a valid and timely Settlement Claim will receive a cash award.
The Court appointed lawyers to represent Class Members, including Greenwald Davidson Radbil PLLC.
